Young Sheldon to end with its seventh season Posted November 15, 2023
CBS has announced that the Young Sheldon, a spin-off of The Big Bang Theory, will conclude with its upcoming seventh season.
The hour-long series finale of Young Sheldon is set to air on Thursday, May 16, on CBS. Due to recent actor and writer strikes, the seventh season will be shorter than usual, consisting of only 14 episodes. The final season is slated to premiere on Thursday, February 15.
Young Sheldon is set in East Texas during the early ‘90s and chronicles the life of a young Sheldon Cooper as he begins high school and subsequently, college.
Young Sheldon first aired in 2017 and ran concurrently with The Big Bang Theory for two seasons. After The Big Bang Theory concluded its twelve-season run in 2019, Young Sheldon rose to become the #1 network comedy, a position it has maintained ever since.
"Being able to tell the origin of Sheldon Cooper, and expanding the story to include the entire Cooper family has been a wonderful experience," said executive producers Steve Holland, Steven Molaro and Chuck Lorre. "We are grateful to our fans for embracing this chapter of the Coopers these past six seasons, and on behalf of the entire Young Sheldon family, we're excited to share this final season with you.”
Earlier this year, it was revealed by Warner Bros. that Chuck Lorre is developing a new spin-off of The Big Bang Theory for the streaming service Max. A recent update from Lorre indicates that the project is still in its early stages of development.
